A landing page is the page that the user 'lands' on when they open your site. If you are using a big site that uses a login system, you want your subscribed users to land on one page whereas those who haven't subscribed should land on another. Does that make sense?

In certain instances you would need something like JS or PHP to manage this, but in the course you are doing not necessarily, it can simply mean the page every user lands on if you don't want it to be the index page, for example you want them to land on an ad page or something.
